I have been with media for most of the day speaking about the billboard that went up this morning. Tonight and tomorrow morning Magdalene Hope, KCAHT and The Alliance Against Family Violence will be featured on Fox 58 KBFX at 10 pm and ABC 23 KERO & CBS 29 KBAK @ 11 pm and again in the morning on their am news shows, please watch or set your DVR's. Lastly a story on the billboard and combatting human trafficking in Kern County will be in tomorrow's edition of The Bakersfield Californian, written by writer Ruth Brown. It is my hope and prayer that many will be brave enough to reach out for help from this collaboration. A special thank you to all of my friends who have of their time, talents and treasures towards this vision.

Kern County is the most-fracked county in California by a wide margin. This region also has the worst air quality in the nation, as well as highly elevated rates of cancer and respiratory illness. For the people that live here, fracking means more oil extraction, more crippling climate impacts, and more impacts on their health. But residents of Kern County are fighting back. They've invited California Governor Jerry Brown to come see the impacts of fracking for himself. Join them and sign the petition to Governor Brown here:
Help make this little cowgirls dream come true. Kyndle is running for Jr. Miss Rodeo Princess for Caliente. This is a picture with one of the rodeo queens at Stampede Days at the Kern County Fair and her riding Sarge in a Western Dressage Show of which she won a 1st place ribbon. Kyndle has been riding horses since she was 4 yrs old and it is her dream to become a Veteranarian so she can help horses. I am selling tickets for $5.00 or $50.00 for 10 tickets, $100 sponsors get a business card size ad put in the Caliente Brochure and 20 tickets. All tickets are tax deductible and you can win $500. cash or a cruise to Mexico. I will have a date and place to buy set up for next Friday. Please let me know if you would like to buy one or more tickets. Thank you, Shelly
Don't get hurt or need emergency services in Kern... Supervisors Approve Sharp Ambulance Rate Hikes Bakersfield, CA - An ambulance ride in nearly all of Kern County will cost substantially more after Tuesday. County supervisors on Tuesday approved substantial rate increases for Hall Ambulance and Liberty Ambulance -- the two companies that have exclusive rights to serve most of the county. Hall Ambulance basic life support and advanced life support rates will increase by $311 to $1,420 a trip. Its advanced life support base rate -- the one paid by people whose lives are in danger -- will go up $345 to $1,660. In total, the cost of an average Hall Ambulance trip will go up around 16 percent, county officials told the board. That's substantial because Hall Ambulance is the only service most county patients can use. Delano Ambulance serves the cities of Delano and McFarland and a strip of territory that runs east and west along the northern border the county. Liberty Ambulance serves the Indian Wells Valley, ...
SLO is Central Coast and Kern County would be Central Valley, IMO. San Bernadino's SoCal.
...and Governor Jerry Brown *still* thinks fracking is a good idea?! It is time for him to face the facts on fracking. We are calling on the Governor to visit Kern County, the most fracking part of the state and also an area very affected by the drought. Join us

We had a blast representing Marley's Mutts at the The Mission at Kern County's 5K run, MISSION POSSIBLE! Julie brought Sophie, and Daryn and I traded off running with Fred. It was so awesome to see the ladies (who work with the dogs and us each week), determinedly burning rubber on the soles of their running shoes; steadfastly moving forward on the beautiful Hart Park/CALM track...forward with their lives. Proud of you all! And thankful for the Mission's inviting us to join in the celebration! -- Liz

The oil companies are now and have been for some time buying up properties and leases all over Kern County in search of ways to make gas extraction profitable for them. They are testing various fracking techniques in order to find the proper chemical combination for profitability. Just thought I might try to give you a heads-up Kern. I realize I am whistling in the wind, but I can't just let it go. You, your children, and your grandchildren are in harm's way. Good luck.

The long-promised PCT segment surveys are up and running! You can be extremely helpful in giving us any info on parts of the PCT you're familiar with. This info will allow us to talk specifically with the Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, non-federal agencies, and private landowners about programs for PCT bicycle use (pilot programs where the no-bikes rule is in effect and PCT-benefitting volunteer maintenance and other land stewardship endeavors where there is no PCT bicycle ban). The first survey of a potentially desirable PCT stretch runs from a back road south to Highway 58 in Kern County, Calif. This is a remote area. The second is a much less remote section of the PCT that runs down to the north bank of the Columbia River near Portland, Ore. From on-site inspections we have done in the last year, we think this would be a prime segment of delightfully rideable PCT! Let us know what you think! Begin by visiting our website and following the survey links. Thank you in advance. www.SharingThePC ...
WEDNESDAY KERN COUNTY WEATHER- Temperatures took a tumble on Wednesday, down more than 15° from Tuesday as a cold front passed by. Rainfall tallies were respectable but generally less than a tenth of an inch in the south valley. Mountain locations saw more moisture and some snow above 5,000'. Tehachapi and vicinity picked up between a quarter and a half inch of rain. Higher elevations of Bear Valley Springs saw 2-3" of snow. The Lake Isabella area enjoyed even more rainfall, generally a half inch to one inch. The most impactful element of this storm has been the very strong winds in eastern Kern County that brought 76 MPH gusts to the Inyokern airport and near zero visibility in blowing dust and sand. A Dust Storm WARNING was issued for the Indian Wells portion of extreme northeast Kern County until 11PM this evening, including Ridgecrest and the China Lake Naval Air Station. A Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) was mistakenly sent to many cell phone users in the Bakersfield area around 12:30 this afternoon. ...

Bakersfield, California: its name and town history The City of Bakersfield, California was actually named for a field which belonged to Colonel Thomas Baker. The colonel owned a home and field where travelers stopped over. It became known as “Baker’s field.” Colonel Baker officially established the city in 1869. According to the Wikipedia article about him, he came to California because of the gold rush. However, there is more to the story than just the gold rush. A field owned by Colonel Thomas Baker was reclaimed swampland a fork of the Kern River. It was on the Los Angeles to Stockton, road and ‘…its close proximity to mountain passes to the west, south, and east…” was the base for a later transportation hub, according to Wikipedia. Prior to becoming Bakersfield the town had been known as Kern Island, Baker’s field and Alkali City. Bakersfield is now known as a major city near the southern edge of the San Joaquin Valley in Kern County, California, according to Wikipedia. About halfway b ...

It seems like Bakersfield Calif. is moving forward to the state capitol for auto racing. A friend up there posted this to me: Subject: Bakersfield Raceway Motorplex Check this out ! "After the acquisition of 110 acres of property from Kern County, Randy Winkle along with John & Blake Bowser will be expanding Famoso Raceway essentially turning the Patch into a multi purpose facility . The following is just south behind the timing slip booth. The new additions will include a Championship Motocross track which is done and is backed by Lucas oil. The first race is scheduled to be had within weeks from now. A 300’ “Sand Drag” pit which is finished along with underground wiring going in, a new tower is also being constructed . The “Sand Pit” will also host Tractor Pulling & Monster truck events. I say “Sand Pit” as Randy had talked with one of the designers who had built these faculties and actually no sand will be used, dirt only as sand crates more dust & is abrasive. West of the Sand Drag pit i ...

Russo's Read: 'The Murder Prospect' by Lee Mossel Reviewed by Michael Russo, co-owner of Russo's Books at The Marketplace If you believe that oil leases, petroleum engineering, and geology aren't a natural thrill ride, you're reading the wrong books! First-time novelist Lee Mossel has struck oil (pardon the puns) in his new high-octane suspense, "The Murder Prospect." The book introduces private investigator Cort Scott, a former U.S. Army Ranger and retired oil industry insider, who works hard, lives fast and plays loose with the rules. Scott's form of justice borders on vigilante, but the man gets results. Indeed, Scott is the right man for the job when an oil exploration deal turns deadly, and he uncovers a vicious mob connection that others prefer remain hidden. Mossel, a retired petroleum geologist and oil executive, is a Denver-area resident with Kern County family and business ties. Although his heart-pounding novel uses the oil industry as its backdrop, this series (book two is due out this spring) ...
Andy Vidak. this in the Bakersfield Californian: By Lois Henry So, a pile of water banked in Kern County is being used to support a massive urban development in Madera County. Before you try and wrap your head around how that's geographically possible, there's the whole question of whether the banked water (and other water slated for the project) even can be used for that purpose. You will need to log in to get the full story, this is just snipit... Does THIS EXPLAIN THE NEW PROPOSED BULLET TRAIN ROUTE! This is muddy water, I believe people on the Board of the this train have a direct connection to this urban development project, aka: direct conflict of interest's.

Local route helps Amtrak set ridership record Local route helps Amtrak set ridership record The nation's passenger rail service has set its 10th ridership record in 11 years and some of the biggest growth was on the line that serves Kern County. Ridership on the Bakersfield-to-Oakland and Bakersfield-to-Sacramento trains was up 6.6 percent in the fiscal year that ended Oct. 1, according to figures released by Amtrak Monday afternoon. That’s the second highest ridership increase in the country. Nationwide, Amtrak carried 31.6 million passengers. That’s a 1.1 percent increase over last year’s record ridership, the service said. Only the Chicago-St. Louis route, with a 9.7 percent increase, beat the San Joaquin route’s increase. “Amtrak itself is an economic engine that returns nearly three dollars to local communities for every one dollar of federal investment (FY 2010-FY 2012),” according to an Amtrak news release. “This support has allowed Amtrak to place more than $12.6 billion back into th ...

To all the Bakersfield Photographers out there that would like to do a little community service and help save lives.

Let me know if you can help and I will direct you to the person at the shelter to set it up. THANKS!

Reporting from Bakersfield today: Kern County doctors in residency programs are the lowest paid in the nation compared to other residents, acc. to their union. They get $40,000/year, usually with at least $250,000 of debt from medical school. The docs here are protesting and demanding more, but many people think doctors are already overpaid. Thoughts?

LOIS HENRY: One man's quest for answers stonewalled by Kern County By Lois Henry No one stonewalls like Kern County. John Hayes knows that better than most. Sept. 23, 2011, mountains south of Tehachapi. 9:45 a.m., Bill Bennett sustains massive head and spinal injuries after being hit by a tree. 9:59 a.m., Jess Witten, his boss, calls 911. 10:30 a.m., Kern County Sheriff's helicopter Air 5 launches from Bakersfield. 10:43 a.m., Both Kern County Fire Department Capt. Jason Nava and Hall Ambulance Unit 375 with a paramedic and emergency medical technician (EMT) arrive at the nearest road. Bennett is a quarter-mile in and must be reached by foot up a short hill, then across the mountain on a logging 'dozer line. Nava takes only a chainsaw with him, assuming the paramedics are right behind him with medical gear. 10:57 a.m., Air 5 locates Bennett. 11:03 a.m., Nava is on scene with Bennett. 11:06 a.m., Hall paramedics give up and are back in their ambulance after having refused a ride on a 'dozer and made no mor ...
Thanks to everyone who participated in yesterdays Honor Flight escorts. We were able to cover three flights (Kern County (Ca.), Lone Eagle, and Space Coast (Fl.). Kern County gave us a standing ovation when we walked out after parking the bikes, which was awesome. The Space Coast group ran into heavy traffic and some of the group got separated, but two (Dan Cabrera, John Maher) managed to deliver that group to the Air Force Memorial which was their first stop for the day. The rest of the group made it to the WWII memorial to greet them when they arrived there. Lone Eagle (National Honor Flight) did their outstanding job as usual bringing veterans who come from various locations together to insure they see their memorial. Thanks to Ralph Brignac and Bob Nelson for their work behind the lenses of their cameras to provide the pictures we all see. Thanks again, Keith

*WARNING THE FOLLOWING MAY OFFEND SOME PEOPLE. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE MY VIEW POINTS. SO DON'T TRY. THEY ARE MINE, AND MINE ALONE.*       Ok, I thought I would put this out there. It's come under scrutiny by many people I know that wonder, "What's Up With The *** Thing?" So I will explain this as best as I can. First, let me give you a little background about me and where I live. I grew up most of my life in Bakersfield California. A very ULTRA Conservative Republican city in California. It sits in the south part of the Central Valley, 2 hours to the north of L.A., 2 hours south of Fresno, 2 hours east of the California Coast, 2 hours west of Death Valley in the middle of Kern County. Kern County is an anomoly, it is a RED county in the middle of a BLUE state. We are one of the fastest growing cities in California and in the U.S., but we maintain small town views, feelings and opinions for the most part. It can be quite nice sometimes, but it does create quite the bit of friction with our citiz ...

Silva's Justice Dear Kern County Sheriff's Office, It has come to our unfortunate attention that on Wednesday, the 8th of May, deputies of your office were directly involved in the death of a Bakersfield man by the name of David Silva. Let us remind you that your employment is only permitted by the people of your city. In exactly one week, on the 18th of May, at noon, we will let the responsible officers be judged by the people you serve. Private information will be released, details of the events leading to the beatings will be gathered, and we the people will act as one to determine the appropriate actions for these officers. These officers wanted to make a statement, and now, you have our undivided attention. We are Anonymous, We are Legion, We do not forgive, We do not forget, Expect us.

T ON BEHALF OF FORMER PRISON INMATE IN VALLEY FEVER CASE $425,000 Settlement First of Its Kind Los Angeles, Calif.—Following a settlement conference in the chambers of Magistrate Judge Paul Abrams, in Los Angeles, late last week, Jason Feldman and Ian Wallach of Feldman & Wallach, Los Angeles, successfully settled a long-standing case on behalf of their client, Arjang Panah who sued the U. S. Government for not taking reasonable steps to prevent him from contracting an incurable disease—that of Valley Fever. Today, Judge Gary Allen Feess signed the Order effectively approving the parties’ agreement. While the government offered no admission of liability, it did agree to settle the case for the unprecedented amount of $425,000, rather than face a court trial which could have resulted in a higher payout. Panah had sued the U.S. Government for several million. Panah was a former inmate at the Taft Correctional Institution in Kern County, California where he was infected with an incurable and potential ...

Kern County says heart disease, not beating, caused man's death: David Sal Silva, videotaped in an altercation...
The L.A. Times: A man at the center of a videotaped altercation with Kern County Sheriff’s deputies month died from heart disease -- not baton blows, authorities said Thursday. The county coroner’s office labeled David Sal Silva’s death accidental, adding that the primary cause of death was hypertensive heart disease. During a news conference Thursday in Bakersfield, Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood provided a detailed description of the deputies' actions. He also said there had been a rush to judgment against the deputies. Videos taken by witnesses showed baton blows and a struggle between Silva and deputies. But Youngblood said those blows were mainly to his midsection and were not fatal. Silva also received a bite from a K-9 dog. Toxicology tests showed Silva had amphetamines and methamphetamines in his system and a blood alcohol level of 0.095, the sheriff said. Youngblood said Silva resisted deputies and tried to attack the dog. The incident has received national attention, and the Sheriff' ...

The FBI is investigating whether police in Kern County, California, tampered with witness cell phone video after a deadly encounter with a suspect. Is there a double standard when it comes to surveillance OF the police instead of BY them?
Two witnesses who saw Kern County Sheriff's deputies beat David Silva before he died accused authorities of erasing one of the cellphone videos that captured the incident.
Outside agencies are getting involved in the Kern County Sheriff's Office in-custody death investigation. The sheriff's office Tuesday also said only one of two cellphones seized from witnesses contain video of the incident.

Ok ATTN ALL LEO's in the house. Question for you on a serious nature. I always have these what if situation in my mind and what brought this one to mind was the instance recently where some officers reportedly beat a man to death with their batons in California. Now if they did thats up to a jury to decide. My question is this. As a normal citizen if you encounter a person that is what you interpret at "killing" another person deadly force can be used to stop the attack. Now put the a uniform on the person doing the killing. For example a LEO has a subject down that person is incapacitated not a threat or fighting back and the LEO continues to operate in a manor that is obviously causing serious bodily harm. Can deadly force be used against that LEO to stop the attack? Just a thought I support you guy 110%. I know that it would open up a legal Pandora's box for the person who shot the LEO or other arriving officers may perceive me as a threat now. Looking for some honest opi ...
Kern County Sheriff deputies not only confiscated phones from witnesses who recorded them beating a man to death last week. They apparently deleted footage.
Mounting pressure from national media and the local community still has not convinced California police to offer any explanation for why they confiscated cell phone video taken by witnesses who say eight or nine officers beat a helpless man to death. The Kern County Sherriff’s Office has responded to allegations of police brutality only by stonewalling reporters and the family of David Silva, 33, who died last week after witnesses say police took turns hitting the supposedly inebriated man in the head with their batons. Observers who phoned 911 to report the police abuse were later visited by detectives demanding they turn over any footage captured in the early morning hours of Wednesday, May 8.
